The Dr. Cy Frank Legacy Lectureship
(Formerly known as the Dr. Cy Frank International Travelling Lectureship)

Commemorate the enduring legacy of Dr. Cyril B. Frank

Dr. Cy Frank was internationally known and acclaimed for his visionary efforts to lead and champion multidisciplinary clinical research and the application of this research to find innovative solutions for clinical care and practices. We want to ensure that Dr. Frank’s legacy is recognized and continues to have an impact on the disciplines that were the passion of his academic and public service careers.

Upon the passing of Dr. Frank in 2015, the University of Calgary and the Cumming School of Medicine established an endowment to create an annual travelling lectureship to honor Dr. Cy Frank’s legacy. Taking place across Canada, the lectureship is awarded to an individual of international stature who is an exemplar of Cy Frank’s vision, innovation and community engagement in health research and health care delivery.

The Dr. Cy Frank Legacy Lectureship is a highly publicized series of annual lectures on timely bone and joint health themes, such as:

      1. Musculoskeletal Health and Research 
        Understanding the basis of bone and joint health, so that researchers and physicians can prevent disease from occurring, diagnose conditions early and develop targeted, effective treatment before long term damage occurs.

      2. Innovations in Healthcare Modelling and Delivery 
        Transforming health outcomes for individuals living with chronic bone and joint health conditions by determining the most effective ways to deliver timely and effective treatment.

The University of Calgary and the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health thanks the friends, family, and colleagues of Dr. Cy Frank who have contributed to the Cy Frank Legacy Lectureship endowment. We continue to accept donations to ensure this lectureship can have national impact for years to come.
